Our topic today is a very interesting one and quite insightful too. Like the teaching of yesterday is a mystery that you may not understand and trying to unravel it is not only time consuming but also a wasteful venture.
A story of St. Augustine who went on quest to unravel the mystery (I have forgotten now), went down to the sea to have serenity but on his way something profound happened, he saw a young chap who dug a small hole and repeated went down to the ocean to pick up water with a spoon pour same into the hole he dug. Augustine having watched him for a while and conclude that this is a wasteful venture then went up to him to say same to him.
So he ask the young chap what he was doing, he narrated to him that he want to pour the ocean into the whole he dug then Augustine asked him how on earth did he think that will be possible to move the ocean into the hole he dug then the young chap asked Him how on earth do he (Augustine) thinks he will unravel the mystery he was on quest for and he disappear from his sight and he (Augustine) went home with the mystery unraveled.
Beloveth, The Word of God told us that “The secret thing belong to God; but the things that are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law” (Deut 29:29).
Today, we will be taking a teaching on the mystery of life that you and I must not spend time to understand what God has put in nature but to accept things that comes our way so long as we have proven that is the “Will” of God.
In our teaching yesterday, the Lord promised to give us a heart of flesh, to some it is a mystery, how can it ever be. When the angel came to Mary to announce to her immaculate conception, so many are still in unraveling the mystery while Jesus has been born, lived out His mission here on earth and went back to His Father in heaven.
Beloveth, what are those mysteries in your life that you so worried about? You need not worry again rather pray concerning it, lay it at Jesus feet and see God working it out for you. Praise the Name of the Lord.
Come along with us for more:
“Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?” Job 38:16
Some things in nature must remain a mystery to the most intelligent and enterprising investigators. Human knowledge has bounds beyond which it cannot pass. Universal knowledge is for God alone. If this be so in the things which are seen and temporal, I may rest assured that it is even more so in matters spiritual and eternal.
Why, then, have I been torturing my brain with speculations as to destiny and will, fixed fate, and human responsibility? These deep and dark truths I am no more able to comprehend than to find out the depth which coucheth beneath, from which old ocean draws her watery stores.
Why am I so curious to know the reason of my Lord’s providences, the motive of His actions, the design of His visitations? Shall I ever be able to clasp the sun in my fist, and hold the universe in my palm? yet these are as a drop of a bucket compared with the Lord my God.
Let me not strive to understand the infinite, but spend my strength in love. What I cannot gain by intellect I can possess by affection, and let that suffice me. I cannot penetrate the heart of the sea, but I can enjoy the healthful breezes which sweep over its bosom, and I can sail over its blue waves with propitious winds.
If I could enter the springs of the sea, the feat would serve no useful purpose either to myself or to others, it would not save the sinking bark, or give back the drowned mariner to his weeping wife and children; neither would my solving deep mysteries avail me a single whit, for the least love to God, and the simplest act of obedience to Him, are better than the profoundest knowledge.
My Lord, I leave the infinite to Thee, and pray Thee to put far from me such a love for the tree of knowledge as might keep me from the tree of life.
Beloveth, did you read that- that we must put away the quest from the tree of knowledge but embrace the quest from the tree of life. Praise the Living Jesus.
Father give us the Holy Spirit to help us in gaining understanding in things You want us to know and also to help us to leave those things that are quest of knowledge than life in Jesus Name.
Beloveth our God is a good God, just lean on him and all shall be well in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
